I've no self interest in pushing this company - except that I appreciate it.
I have a Patagonia jacket I got at St. Vincent de Paul's thrift store that is still my go to winter coat a dozen years later.

I did meet the fellow who started the company, Yvon Chouinard, for a few minutes at a gathering, this back when I dated a mountaineer who was a friend of his, a fellow climber. Past that, I like what I know about him and the Patagonia company.

The article tells lots more, and after reading it, yup, I still like Patagonia.

@ossobucotemp,
Ever worn hemp clothing? I was just ranting about it on a FB knitting page. So sweatttttttty. Feels good when you put it on and then you get dank.

Separately, I do have some Patagonia pieces I quite like. All thrifted, of course.

@ehBeth,
Theirs is a mix, so maybe it's better, or not. No, I've not even seen hemp.. as such.

On thrifts, my favorite stores. I was into them twice: once learning from a fellow lab person who, with her husband and child, lived with super tight money, but who had, besides a chemistry degree, also had an art degree. So what? What was that she was one of the first people I knew who was very inventive in daily life. Dang, I've lost touch with her.

Sometime after that, I had a regular salary and life and enjoyed boutiques and department stores. I remember finding out that once you got the packages back to your apartment, you then needed more. I pinpointed the change as occurring when you walked out the door of the store.
Sanity later prevailed, and I was back to thrifts, both for saving money and for a lot of enjoyment.
Diane and I are going to GoodWill this week or maybe early next week.

@dalehileman,
Yeah. Not me for decades after the seventies, but I'm not against it, I do want it to be legal. I may need the medical kind one of these years, which creep up.

@ossobucotemp,
Ah, I think I misspoke, or people could take it that way - my wanting marijuana to be legal is not because I might need it one of these years - it is because the illegality is stupid.

That is because you mess up normal discourse with your abbreviated wordplay, incessently.
